ART HOUSE AND ALTERNATIVE VENUE PROGRAMMING
As audiences for films become more segmented, how can filmmakers work directly with art house and alternative venue programmers to showcase their latest content and bring audiences back to the theatres? This session will bring together DIY filmmakers and programmers to discuss what works best to market, position, and program independent films in art house theatres and alternative venues, and how to maximize financial impact for both parties.
